President Trump holds a press conference regarding criticism on his reactions and statements to the riot erupting over a scheduled rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
SCROLL BELOW TO WATCH
In response to the vehicle attack upon a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia Saturday, President Trump sent out another Twitter message Saturday evening, confirming his support to the city and the victims.
“We will continue to follow developments in Charlottesville, and will provide whatever assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able,” Trump tweeted.
Having earlier tweeted out a video clip from his statements on the attack, in this tweet, President Trump included another video with more of his remarks. “We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me, it’s very, very sad,” Trump said at a press conference Saturday in New Jersey.
He commended the law enforcement, state and local police in Virginia and the National Guard for their service in Charlottesville. “We are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed, we are ready, willing and able,” Trump said.
“Above all else, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all AMERICANS FIRST. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are, so we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville. We want to study it, and we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen,” President Trump said.
He continued, “My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together. Ideally, we have to love each other.”
